The Acropolis is a fun Greek taverna, with tasty offerings. It's great for family or friend gatherings as it has a happy vibe and lots of food choices with reasonable prices. The belly dancers come by in the evening, servers dance around, and they toss napkins in the air. Opa!

The bread before the meal and the bread on the gyro was excellent, I wanted to find out how the cook did it because it was awesome, and I've eaten a lot of food in my life.

From traditional Greek dishes and kebabs to burgers. Something for the whole family to enjoy. We went on a Monday night, and they lively music and dance by the wait staff made it extra fun. Opa!

We visited two years ago and the food was amazing; huge chunks of meat on our kebabs, fresh and full of flavor. We visited last month and the size of the kebab meat had been drastically reduced. I could have made that at home. The atmosphere was good, like a greek restaurant should be, but the food had declined from... More

My friend and I were in Ybor City and happened upon Acropolis Greek Taverna. Glad we did! We had a lovely dinner! The service was excellent and the food delicious, with reasonable prices. The flaming cheese is really yummy!! Would highly recommend this charming restaurant if you are in Ybor City.

We sat outside and had a delightful meal watching the world go by listening to awful music (not Greek). I was told by my waitress that it was the managers choice and that the staff didn't like it either. In that case she should choose what suits her customers rather than what she wants to listen to. The meal was... More

We had an amazing meal at Acropolis. The special was Moussaka with pastitsio and dolomodes with a Greek salad for $17!! It was a superb meal! I ate every bite! oh and the Shimp Tinos as an appetizer is excellent! They give you fresh made bread to sop up the sauce. I could bathe in that sauce!

This was in Ybor City which is a main strip with bars and restaurants. I recommend you try to find parking on the street as the area around the restaurant is not such a good part of town. The food was delicious. I had a whole fish grilled which was awesome. The spanakopita is a must-have. You should stick around... More

Went to check out Ybor today and the neighborhood is still not fully gentrified. This restaurant looked the busiest so that's why I chose it. The drink specials were great. The bread and butter at the table were unique and amazing. Hummus and pita were delicious. Wine prices were a little high but they had options for every budget. Didn't... More
